26 out of 26 people would recommend this product12/09/2018, By PhillipaI love the Esse range and this moisturiser in particular. I use it during the day and at night and it absorbs beautifully into my skin. I’m sure I look ten years younger since buying it for the first time earlier this year. Cruelty-free, It is beautifully and aesthetically packaged too, just like the rest of their range. I am a fan for life!25/07/2018, By LarisaMade me break out, seems like I might be allergic to the product. Also feels a bit clayish on my skin and doesn't absorb easily.12/07/2018, By JaneMy skin is on the dry side, and I find this moisturizer perfect. It is very nourishing, but not too emollient. It's great under makeup.14/05/2018, By Kristi-JadeOriginally tried this out from the trial pack. Really moisturizes my skin well and my skin feels soft and moisturized the next day too!04/05/2018, By LBWThis is the only natural face cream out of many I have tried that moisturizes my very dry skin enough20/04/2018, By CatOne of the better creams I have used, not the greatest smell but that is the choice one makes when choosing not to have harmful chemicals on your skin27/03/2018, By AnneLove the Esse skincare products. This cream works well for my skin, leaves my skin soft and hydrated.19/02/2018, By NI tried all the moisturisers (rich, deep, sensitive etc) the Ultra is the one I keep buying. I use it year round, even summer, when the humidity is low and the skin is extra thirsty. I used to have combination skin, but although the cream is rich, it's never greasy. I apply it at night and often the next morning I have to reapply because the skin absorbs this cream fully during the night.
Great moisturiser, can't say it helps with ageing though...19/02/2018, By BonnieThis is an exceptional product. I have been using it for about a year and will keep doing so.09/02/2018, By ShelleyMy skin feels softer and smoother, it really helps in the harsh Gauteng climate26/01/2018, By MarniThis is great for my very dry skin. It moisturises without making my skin oily or shiny. Love how smooth my skin feels if I use the Esse Cleanser, microderm exfoliater and this moisturizer. The trail pack was a great way to try it and I have now order the full size.04/01/2018, By TammyI love the scent of this moisturiser! I also love how good it feels on my skin very nourishing!08/10/2017, By TjSamples are a fantastic way to try out new products. I would like to purchase this in the future. It helped on those days when I needed a richer moisturiser.28/09/2017, By RobynneBattling with my skin during winter in Cape Town,this is a wonderful product, smooth non-oily finish28/09/2017, By CarolI love the moisturising effect of this product especially on the dry areas on my skin. It feels light where other products are heavy and oily13/09/2017, By Almost Crunchy MamaI loved this product and will definitely be buying it again. I'm not a fan of essential oils in skin care but I loved the product that much that I didn't care. The probiotics helped clear my acne and the rich moisturizer helped my super dry skin. I did feel that I needed to use a lot of product in one go through. My makeup applied nicely over this.22/08/2017, By MelissaThis is a great moisturiser. However, my super sensitive/difficult skin had a reaction to it and had to stop using it.30/07/2017, By DLI was treated to a day at a Spa that used Esse products. I found that these products suit my mature skin very well as it tends to be dry, especially in winter. I will definitely continue to use the Ultra Moisturiser.16/06/2017, By KSAnother wonderful Esse cream - great, especially in winter on the Highveld.14/06/2017, By JayI started using Esse about 2 years ago and purchased most of the skincare range. My skin was feeling a little dry and dull recently, so I purchased the ultra moisturizer.. and it has been wonderful for my skin!!28/04/2016, By CristinaEsse is a fantastic range! So happy to have found it after years of trying various natural skin care ranges!
After trying out the light moisturiser (that was way too light for my combination skin), i found the ultra moisturiser. It is extremely nourishing and very light, fantastic for my skin. Looking no further!!10/12/2015, By SusanI have a very dry skin and this is working wonders!21/09/2015, By DebbieMy skin loves this rich cream that I use as a night cream.16/09/2014, By CandaceI have very dry skin so need a rich moisturiser and this product is perfect! No more flakes and dry patches (it saved my skin in Winter!) and it also has a bit of a tint, so you don look like a ghost when putting it on. It also does not irritate my sensitive skin.03/05/2011, By DeirdrieI am used to top non-organic brands such as Estee Lauder and Lancome. This compares very well. It feels water rich, has a lot of oils but is not greasy. Very good value for money. I have the usual hormone related break-outs but has impoved on this product.
